Is Christianity Pagan?
Rabbi Yehudah ben Shomeyr
Stop railing against the teats that fed you! Rabbis tell us that Moses was not permitted to turn the Nile into blood because it carried and protected him in the basket, so Aaron did it. Likewise, stop cursing Christianity from which most of you came. You do not bite the hand that fed you for so long. “Christianity is Pagan,” you cry! Really? Is a leper pagan? No, a leper is still Israel; the leper just needs to be quarantined outside the camp until the leprosy is healed and cleansed. Christianity came from Judaism (and Judaism came from Torah) and was infected with the leprosy of paganism. To say Christianity is pagan is to say Judaism is pagan. Christianity is just infected and needs to be shown the compassion Messiah Yeshua shown the lepers. Many of you were at one time infected due to your mother and if was not for the Messianic compassion of others you too would still leprous and be outside the camp. On account of Miriam, Moses’ sister contracting leprosy, what do the Rabbis say causes leprosy? LaShone Hara, The evil tongue, which is slander and gossip. Repent, put down your stones and withdraw your accusing finger before it withers. Now look in the mirror and watch, lest the leprosy breaks out on your forehead. We need to re-read the life of Yeshua the Messiah and take His cue in dealing with others.
